Before retiring, GloJean Todacheene worked for 26 years in the Central Consolidated School District#22 as a home economics educator, an elementary school principal and a curriculum support administrator. She inspired many of her students to believe that "the future belongs to a learned person." She emphasized that for all minorities, education is the key to a better quality of life and personal success. Ms. Todacheene demonstrated that any Native American can obtain a "piece of the American Pie" through hard work, persistence, diligence, integrity and good character. She was a champion for bilingual and multi-cultural education, believing that speaking more than one language enriches a person's life and gives that person a sense of identity. She was an inspiration to many of her Navajo students.
